iPhone Enabled Smart Socks Are a Thing

 |  |  |  February 22, 2017


If you feel that you need to pair your iPhone with your socks, you need some serious help. Actually, the tech world needs some serious help, because iPhone enabled socks actually exist.

These Classic Calf Socks with Plus+ technology are sold by Blacksocks.com. They cost $189(USD) for ten pairs and each individual sock has a communication button that can connect to your iPhone using an included transmitter.

Imagine your phone could communicate with your socks. Your phone would know:

which socks belong together, and could help sort them out,
how often you have washed your socks,
when your socks were produced,
when you ordered your socks,
and when your socks were dispatched.

Your iPhone can also tell you if your black socks are no longer properly black [by taking a photo and comparing it to a chart] and help you buy new socks.

Why? Why the hell not? We are all doomed anyway. I guess this tech is for those with an unnatural and obsessive love of socks. If you want this product, it may be time to admit you have a problem.
